      The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), the Georgia State Division of Public Health, and the Florida Department of Health are investigating illnesses among four recipients of organ transplants from a single donor.

      West Nile virus infection was confirmed in the organ donor by detection of viral genomic material by PCR in a serum sample obtained on the day of death. Because of injuries sustained during a motor vehicle accident, the donor had received numerous transfusions of blood products before death. West Nile virus infection has been confirmed in three of the organ recipients; the fourth recipient has not yet been tested. Additional clinical information about the recipients is indicated below.
